Club to Offer Unique Selection of Rock & Roll Themed Wines
LOS ANGELES, November 11, 2011 — Rolling Stone magazine announced today it has started accepting memberships for its new Wine Club to debut 11/11/11. The Rolling Stone Wine Club takes a unique approach to the wine space, offering Rock & Roll themed wines that call upon legendary rock albums to inspire the wine making process.
The official Rolling Stone Wine Club offers wine enthusiasts the opportunity to receive three bottles of award-winning Rock & Roll themed wine to their doorstep for $39.95 per shipment, plus shipping and tax. The Rolling Stone Wine Club will ship four times a year, each shipment will offer a different set of Rock & Roll themed wine. New Wine Club members also receive a one year subscription to Rolling Stone magazine as part of their membership.
Rolling Stone Wine Club
The Rolling Stone Wine Club is a partnership between Rolling Stone and Wines That Rock, creators of award winning Rock & Roll infused wines and IMG Licensing, who serve as Rolling Stone’s exclusive global licensing agent.
“We originally saw the wines backstage at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame shows and thought they’d be a perfect fit for our audience,” said John Gruber, COO of Wenner Media, publishers of Rolling Stone. “The classic album artwork combined with the great tasting wine makes a unique product that our readers can easily access through the Wine Club membership.”
“With Wines That Rock, we wanted to re-think traditional wines and do something totally different,” said Wines That Rock co-founder Ron Roy. “Our winemakers are literally going into the studio, listening to classics like Pink Floyd’s ‘The Dark Side of the Moon,’ and using the musical themes, structure and attitude of the music to help guide the wine-making process.”
Wines That Rock first poured its rock-infused wines backstage in the artists lounge at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Concerts at Madison Square Garden in the Fall of 2009, and has enjoyed a series of successful wine launches, including the Rolling Stones’ “Forty Licks Merlot,” The Police’s “Synchronicity Red Blend,” “Woodstock Chardonnay,” Pink Floyd’s “The Dark Side of the Moon Cabernet Sauvignon” and most recently the Grateful Dead’s “Steal Your Face Red Blend.”
“We’re excited to work with Rolling Stone on this project,” said co-founder of Wines That Rock Howard Jackowitz. “We are not a typical wine company, and our products speak directly to Rolling Stone’s core audience. We’re really focused on creating a fun, authentic lifestyle brand, blending wine and music in a way that has never been done before. Rolling Stone is really the perfect partner for us.”
IMG Licensing Vice President, Randy Klein, added, “This was a great opportunity to create dynamic business collaboration for consumers and wine enthusiasts alike to enjoy. The Rolling Stone Wine Club brings together an iconic brand like Rolling Stone with a uniquely suited partner, Wines That Rock, to create a fun, exciting, and one-of-a- kind way to experience wine.”

In partnership with Rolling Stone Magazine we launched the Rolling Stone Wine Club that offers music and wine lovers our rock inspired wines 4 times a year and a subscription to Rolling Stone magazine ....now that rocks!
The study shows that people who drink wine while listening to music perceive the wine to have the same taste characteristics of the particular artist.
The research published in the British Journal of Psychology found that for the best earthy and full-bodied Merlot taste experience, drinkers should try listening to Tom Jones.
Or to add a little zing to a glass of Pinot Grigio pull out the latest Lady Gaga album.
We LOVE it!

See you there! PS- Were going to bring a few bottles of our newest relese - Grateful Dead Red Wine Blend! Don't miss out on that!
Here we grow again!
The entire crew at Wines That Rock is beyond excited to announce our latest Rock 'n Roll themed wine - The Grateful Dead – Steal Your Face- 2009 Red Wine Blend.
Look at those beauties! Our newest addition to the line up is a pure mix of passion & music, combined in a way that could only be brought to you by Wines That Rock. Here are some of the details:
We begin with the classic sounds of the Grateful Dead’s “Steal Your Face” and started building from there. Our award winning vineyards in Mendocino California are where the magic takes place; from the earth the grapes are nurtured in, to the packaging we use, every aspect is scrutinized; the quality of the fruit, the environmental impact and earth friendly production are paramount. Even our labels are printed on recycled paper and use soy-based ink. That’s probably why we’ve been called the “Greenest Vineyard in America”
Next, it’s over to the laboratory with winemaker Mark Beaman, where the process for making “Steal Your Face” really begins. Guided by band member’s notes, and the sound system cranking it out, Mark immerses himself with the sounds and visuals of the legendary Grateful Dead, striving to absorb the vibe of the band and contemplating how to translate it all into a bottle of wine.
Each wine we create is a reflection and interpretation of the music itself. True!
To capture the essence of the Grateful Dead, we chose to meld several varieties into one. Just as the band members would segue through various musical styles, this wine’s far reaching flavors melt seamlessly from one to the next. In honor of the Grateful Dead’s famous improvisational concerts that have brought joy to so many, this wine celebrates a bounty of diversity and freedom of experimentation.
Here are some of the nitty gritty details about this luscious bottle of wine!
So starting right now, Grateful Dead Steal Your Face 2009 Red Wine Blend is now available online. Go get your hands on one of the first bottles off the line. It’s available in either a 3-pack, 6-pack, or a 12 bottle case.
Why not try a mixed 5 pack with each one of our rock inspired wines, including Pink Floyd – Dark Side Of The Moon Cabernet, The Rolling Stones Forty Licks Merlot, the Original Woodstock Festival Chardonnay and The Police Synchronicity Red Wine Blend. Also check your local retailers if they have it, and if they don’t carry it for any reason, be sure to ask them to!
The complete Wines That Rock line up!
And just for fun, if you’ve ever been to a Dead show, we want to know about it! Get over to our Facebook page and post up the date and place.
We know you will enjoy the wine as much as we have in putting this all together! And yes, we’re having a blast! As it says right on the bottle, pull the cork, crank up the Grateful Dead, and enjoy the taste of Steal Your Face!
